One Wok Chicken Rice

Lazy Mum is going for a good hot and tasty meal today and it is going to be "1 wok cooked" affair ... Time taken to prepare - less than 40 minutes

With a buzy schedule everyday, we still need to ensure the people we love gets the best on the dining table ... This 1 Wok Chicken Rice is very simple and it is easy to cook as you just have to put everything into the Rice Cooker and get it to cook for you - no fuss at all!

The rice goes very well with the Lime Chilly aka "Mother-In-Law Sauce" to some Penangnites... It is very simple to make but if you find it too tedious, try this : Next time when you "tar pau" chicken rice from the stall, ask for more chilly packets and store it in the fridge for future use..hahahha, good idea! No, no, I dont do that, infact this Lime Chilly Sauce is my speciality...I am good at it.

Chicken Rice from the stall is rather unhealthy as some uses the fats from the chicken to cook the rice and it gives the rice an "oily" feel.

What you require?

1/2 chicken or 2 chicken thighs - chopped it into pieces

1 thumbsize ginger - chopped

1 clove of garlic - chopped

Sprig of spring onion - for garnishing

1 cup rice - serve 4

2 Tablespoon Light soya sauce

salt - to taste

What to do next?

1. Heat the pan with a little oil and fry the chopped ginger and garlic till aromatic and add in the chicken and stir for 5 minutes

2. Add in the washed rice and stir well over low heat. Add in 2 tablespoon light soya sauce and salt - to taste and fry till the rice looks dry in the pan

3. Lastly, drop all into the rice cooker and add the appropriate level of water to cook the rice.

4. Ready to Serve once the rice is cooked. Garnish the rice with chopped spring onions to add colors and complement the rice with "Mother-In-Law Sauce"....

Yummy, taste good and healthy too...less fats!

** How much water for the rice? You can first measure the water and the rice in the rice cooker with your finger, then drain out the water into a bowl, keep and use it later.
